RaulGonzales Gets the Better of Isildur1 at $1k/$2k 2-7 Triple Draw

Yesterday marked the end of Viktor "Isildur1" Blom's latest upswing as he was on the wrong end of another $1k/$2k 2-7 Triple Draw battle with German pro RaulGonzales who ended as the day's biggest winner with a $172.3k profit.

$33.5k of RaulGonzales profit came from the continuation of the pairs lengthy battle which ran from Friday evening through to the early hours of yesterday morning. The first four hours of Saturday saw RaulGonzales take a $130k advantage over Blom before the Swedish pro won back $100k, leaving him with a small deficit.

After a 14 hour break the players were back at it early yesterday evening. The session started well for Isildur1 who took a $50k lead in the first hour of the match. The next two and a half hours, however, were anything but good for Blom as RaulGonzales went on a +$180k upswing. The 574 hand match lasted a little over 3 hours, resulting in a $138.8k win for RaulGonzales.

There was another six-figure winner from yesterday's games, as Trueteller left the tables with a $120k profit after a long day at the PLO and NLHE tables.

The Russian pro started his day winning $61k from Dani "supernova9" Stern at the $100/$200 PLO tables after a three hour afternoon match. In fact, Trueteller ended up winning nearly $80k from Stern after adding another $18.8k win late yesterday evening.

The remainder of Trueteller's profit came from several hours play spread across the day at the $50/$100 and $100/$200 NLHE 6max tables.

The biggest pot of the match came from the morning NLHE sessions:
